Bought: May 1996 with 12,500 miles - Currently: 90 K miles
It's basically stock...other than
Progressive (brand) fork springs.
White Power Rear shock
R80 GS Handlebars
R80 GS oil pan and P/D Bash plate
Ridiculous front fender
Sem-chunkly tires..Gripster rear...Bridgestone tw-39 front
"I ride it like an Enduro"
If there is one thing that I could describe about its character..especially on the pavement is its "neutral feel"....I say that from the perspective: when I'm really pushing the limits (of my courage and tires)...both tires seem to start sliding at the SAME TIME"....and man is that exhilarating. The front does not seem to push, nor does the rear seem to "kick-out". these characteristics seem to hold even when loaded with saddlebags and more (I do find myself crowding the fuel tank).
